Hans Ralph Smedbol

December 2, 1951 - December 4, 2015


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Hans Ralph Smedbol on December 3, 2015 after a short fight with cancer. Born in New Denver on December 2, 1951 to Marion and Hans Smedbol, he lived for most of his life in the Slocan Valley, except for the time he spent at the University of Victoria where he got a bachelor of music and his later years in the City of Nelson. Pre-deceased by his parents, he is survived by his beloved wife Easwari Thoreraj, brother Richard Smedbol and children Emanuel and Tara Smedbol. The family would like to thank Dr. Malpass, Dr. Kailia, and the home care nurses who have been with us on this tumultuous journey.

I only knew Hans Smedbol from the comments he left on articles I wrote for an online newspaper. I always enjoyed his comments and looked forward to them. When I recently posted a story and I got no feedback from Hans, I knew something was wrong. Hans came across as a fine, intelligent gentleman. I am sure he will be sorely missed. I send my heartfelt condolences to his family.

From: Anne Rumsey
Relation: Friend from University

I am saddened to hear of Hans’ passing. I remember him with great fondness from our university years. He switched to a music major on my encouragement because of his amazingly beautiful bass voice (which naturally occurs in few people). He was always so kind and gentle. My heart goes out to his family.
